Noting the mistakes of the game and taking it to the locker room after the game is fine, but doing some game analyzing and making corrections as it is happening is in order too.
Curious what the players thoughts are about their head coach and how they rate him.
Examples of Coaches that don't/didn't show much outward emotion on the field

Bum Phillips
Tom Landry
Bud Grant
Tony Dungy
Head coach of the 80's era Steelers cant remember his name.

This is just off the top of my head. These guys weren't too shabby. Going loco on the field makes a head coach look out of control of both the game and himself IMO. Give me a calm cool commander in battle any day.
